According to Levy, Stitch here is a riot. He certainly looks like a quizzical guy!

Unfriendly? This guy? His hooman sibling has something to say about that.

Striking Photo Series Attempts To Debunk Perception Of Black Dogs

In a classic case of “don’t judge a book by its cover,” a barrage of both volunteered pets and abandoned shelter dogs teamed up with dog-ruvin’ photographer Fred Levy to produce some furnomenal portraits.

In an effort to dissuade potential dog parents from conceding to the rather irrational idea of “Black Dog Syndrome” — where people are supposedly less likely to adopt black dogs due to the fear that the animal is unfriendly — Levy’s “Black Dog Project” showcases a series of black dogs against black backdrops. Put simply, these photos are breathtaking, and I’m not just saying that because I have a soft spot for the dark-furred pups.

Following the uproar these photos caused, Levy decided to publish them in a book titled, “Black Dogs Project: Extraordinary Black Dogs And Why We Can’t Forget Them,” coming out next fall. A percentage of the proceeds will even be going to a Labrador rescue in San Diego, and who doesn’t ruv that?

To see more of these mesmerizing photos, visit Levy’s Tumblr, and to pre-order his book, head on over to Amazon.
